About the Foundation

WE DON'T JUST MAKE COFFEE; WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

We're committed to looking after our coffee-growers. That's why we've established The Costa Foundation, a registered charity. The Foundation's aims are to relieve poverty, advance education and the health and environment of coffee-growing communities around the world.

The Foundation's work follows on from the support Costa has provided for many years via funds donated to the Charities Trust, also a registered charity. Those funds have improved the social and economic welfare of coffee-growing communities in countries such as Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Uganda and Vietnam.

So far, with the help of you, our loyal customers, those funds have funded the building of 22 schools - and made a very real difference to thousands of children.

In fact, as we speak your donations are helping to lay the building blocks of prosperity (often literally) across the continents.
